Framed Fabric Monogram

You all may know by now that I'm not the most artistic person in the world. However, I still enjoy beautiful things and crafts as much as any other woman. It's just that anything I do has to be pretty much dummy-proof or I will find some way to mess it up!
When I found out that I would have the opportunity to try out items from the Martha Stewart Decoupage line, I immediately thought of an easy project that even someone like me could complete.
First, here are all the goodies I recieved:
The supplies I used for this craft were:
- Martha Stewart fabric-to-fabric decoupage (I used the matte finish)
- Martha Stewart decoupage brushes
- Fabric of choice (I used a sheet I found at the thrift store)
- Card stock
- Picture frame
Here's how I did it:
First, I found a font that I liked and printed it off on the computer.
I cut it out and used it as a template to cut out an identical piece of black fabric.
Next I used a piece of card stock as a template to cut my base fabric the right size.
I applied a layer of decoupage on the back of the monogram and adhered it to the center of my base fabric.
Then I applied several coats of decoupage over top of the whole thing to seal it. I did this several times, giving it a couple hours of drying time in between.
Finally, I adhered the entire thing to a piece of card stock and stuck it in a frame. I opted to leave it without the glass so that the texture of the fabric could be more prominently displayed. (By the way, this is a great way to use thrift store frames that are missing their glass!)
That was it! Done quickly and easily! If I can do it, anyone can!
